TAPS Fish House & Brewery Restaurant Review

: This expansive brewery boasts artsy, eclectic décor with a slight Cajun flair to go along with a good location, as its sprawling structure provides a southern anchor to the lively bustle of downtown Brea. It pours top beers by brewmaster Victor Novak, including his Cream Ale and his hearty Russian Imperial Stout. Beer lovers can't get enough of his special barrel-aged brews, as well as his seasonal selections like the popular Oktoberfest and pumpkin ale. Chef Manny Gonzalez matches Novak’s skill with his Midwestern Angus steaks, Cajun specialties and especially seafood, where he uses local ingredients and the allure of the oyster bar. The Sunday jazz brunch is a real treat (and a value), when the raw bar and several tables in the bar area are loaded with a variety of delicacies. Guests pile their plates with cracked crab claws, fresh oysters, spicy peeled shrimp and imported cheeses, while prepared entrées range from jambalaya to biscuits and gravy, and chefs at various stations make waffles, omelets and pastas to order. Waiters keep the Champagne flutes --- or, for real beer fanatics, pint glasses --- full.
